12 Ways To Smell Better And Keep Body Odor Away
While normally one would assume that we smell great, the fact is that most of us face instances throughout the day where we do not smell that great. The less than fresh smell could be from the body or the mouth but smelling less than fresh can be a reason to feel awkward. Here are some tips that will work at improving your confidence in the way you smell. They are easy and natural.
Tips to keep body odor away: Contrary to what people think, sweat by itself does not bad smell but when mingled with the bacteria on the skin, can result in bad smell. So the key to keep smelling good is:
To reduce the occurrence of bacteria: This means regular showers on a daily basis plus a shower after any strenuous activity. You can also try applying deodorant to keep odor away. A natural alternative is to dip some cotton in apple cider vinegar and applying it to the armpits to keep bacteria down.
Trying to reduce sweating: The perspiration pattern is based mainly on genetics but a few changes in lifestyle will also help. You can try and keep away from foods that are spicy, hot drinks like coffee as these things make you sweat more. Even medicines like acetaminophen and aspirin can make you sweat more. Another cause of excess sweating is imbalance of hormones or problem with thyroid. You can talk to your doctor if some of these measures don’t work so that you can get Botox injections to stop the sweating.
